Explore a bit of NYC, hone your writing about Applied Improvisation, and improvise with a literary agent. The day begins with a playful, interactive session of doing and writing about Applied Improvisation with Caitlin McClure, co-editor of Applied Improvisation: Leading, Collaborating and Creating Beyond the Theatre at a midtown rehearsal studio. After lunch, participants will go to the offices of Jim Levine, of the Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency. Jim and team will lead a fun and low pressure improv session on how to pitch your Applied Improv book ideas in creative and practical ways, how to get an agent and get published. The session will end with honing our text, sharing what we’ve learned, and an invitation to keep observing and writing about the four-day conference (with an end of conference check in.) Whether you currently write — for your website, a case study, an article, grant proposal, or book — or aspire to learn the how-to’s, you will leave this Learning Journey with a deeper understanding of your own unique approach to Applied Improvisation work and how you can share it with the world.

Participants will need: Laptop, snacks, water
